I'm trying to set up an unattended AVG install as a part of a Windows 7 deployment, but I keep running into an issue where Windows Firewall service is disabled after AVG is installed. AVG firewall isn't being installed, and the "disablewinfw" switch isn't being used.

Here's the .ini file I'm using for the install. I modified it from a previous installation method set up by my predecessor, so if there's something done wrong it's because I don't know any better.

LicenseKeyCoded=****************

AppMode=setup
StartedByAgent
NIW
ChangeBrowserSearchProvider=0
UILevel=silent
IgnoreCompetitors
RestartDelay=60
DataCenterCoded=********************
StationGroup=**********************
UpdateServerCoded=*********************
InstallToolbar=0
InstallFeatures=fea_AlertMg;fea_SysTool;LinkScnFea;fea_SrchSrf__Surf;fea_OnlnSc;IDPGroupFea;fea_IDP;fea_lng_us;fea_Client;

Hi F T B C,

If you add this parameter to the ini file, Windows Firewall should be enabled after install:

EnableWinFW

Thanks,
